In our fifth episode of CopperCasts, we’re joined by David Shrier, an Oxford and MIT futurist.

David has had an incredible career, focussed largely on how technology can be used to make a positive impact on our lives. He’s taught at Oxford University as well as MIT, and lectured at a host of other prominent institutions. He’s consulted fortune 500 companies and numerous governments around the world. And he’s authored more than a few books, including Blockchain Basics, and Augmenting your Career: How to win at work in a world of AI.

CopperCasts are split into two parts. The first is a short (2min) video in which our guest shares with us something they find unusual or inspiring about the digital asset space. The second half is a traditional audio-only podcast, which you can stream at the bottom of this page, or search for it in iTunes.

In his Show & Tell segment, David provides a compelling comparison between the adoption rate of crypto vs the adoption rate of the most transformative technology of all time – the internet.

In our longer conversation, David dives deep into blockchain from his AI-centric perspective, discusses his new book, and candidly reveals why he has no regrets not investing in Bitcoin at $400.

Definitely follow David on Twitter, and pick up his books. He has a mountain of knowledge and experience that everyone in this sector can benefit from.
